Poetry International Festival '24

05 Jun '24

From June 7 to June 9, the 54th edition of the Poetry International Festival will take place in Rotterdam. 21 poets and spoken word artists will be especially highlighted, in a full programme of readings, interviews, performances, and workshops. The theme? Everything out of poetry and the poetic out of everything. For more information and tickets, be sure to visit their website here.

Our Perdu booksellers have made a selection from the Perdu collection and archives of the important works by (some of) the poets foregrounded by the festival. You can find this selection physically in the shop as well as on the webshop, but here’s a sneak preview:

  • Geloof me niet als ik vertel over de oorlog — Asmaa Azaizeh
  • Wilde dood — marwin vos
  • Selected Poems — Linton Kwesi Johnson
  • Man met hoed — Lieke Marsman
  • Solio — Samira Negrouche

Be sure to drop by, and have fun at the festival! We’d love to hear how you liked it.
